Crook Released by Obama Executed

Looks like someone had a score to settle.

(Reuters) – A Michigan man whose drug-related prison sentence was commuted by former President Barack Obama was shot dead this week at a federal halfway house, according to local media reports.

Demarlon Thomas, 31, was shot and killed on Monday night by a man with an assault-style rifle in Saginaw, Michigan, around 100 miles (160 km) northwest of Detroit, according to local CBS affiliate WNEM.

A spokesman for the Michigan State Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters.

Two masked men with assault-style rifles entered the facility where around two dozen people were staying, Michigan State Police Lt. David Kaiser told local news website

“One person watched over a group of them while another subject located the victim and executed him,” Kaiser said, according to the website. “They were looking for this person.”

    I might have to rethink being against early release in this manner.

    Funny how different people can see the same story and come away with two different conclusions, ain’t it?

    for example…I beleive this yet another reminder that the War on Drugs is a terrible national policy that must be ended, while Kevin seems to think this report shows why those laws need to remain in place.
